    AFAIK the bushes are bonded to the bar. You have to replace the lot.

    I've not done it on a CLS, but I wouldn't think that its much different to an E class of the same age.
    My only experience is on a W210, which may not apply.

    Cannot be that difficult looking at the diagrams. Just remove the clamps to access the bushes and a few grazed knuckles and some swearing later and you will be done.

    I know what you mean when I looked at my cls it looked as if the engine needed tilting. Or the radiators removed .. the w211 and w219 share the same chassis .... oh well !!

    It will still be the same process.
